Fishing Report

Lake Charlie Capps - 9/17/2019 3:44:58 PM


The bream activity has started to pickup on Lake Charlie Capps. Several anglers have been having some success around the piers early in the morning and around the brush pilings along the bank. Crickets and worms seem to be working best for anglers right now at the lake.

Bass fishing is still pretty slow. Some anglers are catching some here and there. However, they are all small and really not preferable size.

Since the fish kill in 2017, Capps has been re-stocked with bass, bream, catfish, and triploid crappie.  These fish should continue to grow and reproduce and fill the lake. 




Creel Limits:    

  • Bass - 5 per day
  • Bream - 100 per day
  • Crappie - 20 per day 

All anglers except those exempt from purchasing a fishing license must carry on their person an annual Wildlife Management Area user permit to fish at Lake Charlie Capps.  These are available wherever hunting and fishing license are sold.  Only bank fishing and non-motorized boats may be used.
